Debbie Wasserman Schultz Will Face Pivotal 2014
As 2014 starts, Debbie Wasserman Schultz will face some interesting decisions in the new year which will impact her political future.
Wasserman Schultz is in the odd position of defending her congressional seat, running the Democratic National Committee (DNC), trying to advance her prospects of replacing Nancy Pelosi to lead House Democrats, and looking to advance her chances for higher office in Florida.
Keeping her congressional seat should be Wasserman Schultz’s easiest task in 2014. After dispatching Karen Harrington in 2010 and 2012, Wasserman Schultz will face a different Republican this time out. The likes of Juan Eliel Garcia, Mike Giallombardo and Joe Kaufman might be able to fire up the Republican base against Wasserman Schultz but they’ll have a hard time defeating her in this Democratic-leaning district. Wasserman Schultz should have no problem keeping in office in 2014.
